New Camera Strap Sleeves

My NaNoWriMo Word Count: 8,056 words thus far!

In July I made new camera strap sleeves for my husband and me. You can read that post here which has links to various online tutorials.

Over the summer, we wandered about taking pictures of everything in sight and the new straps became terribly dirty.While I could easily wash them, I had not made them quite long enough to account for the stretching of our original straps which I used as the base material. So, I made new ones for our cruise which I forgot to share with you until now.

This time I made the strap covers 2.5 times the length of the stretchy OpTech straps. This one is my husband’s.

Here is my new strap cover sleeve. Blue is our favorite color.

The new strap sleeves were really helpful on our vacation as we visited extremely humid islands which meant we were glistening (i.e., sweating) quite a lot. Now I can just slip off the dirty strap sleeves for a quick wash and put them back on our straps.

Oh, wow! Congrats on nearly 9,000 words! Woohoo! (That said, my boy babe is trying to help me type and I must go. Nice sleeves.)

They're so pretty June! Camera straps are on my loooong list of things that I want to do!

Hi June

I have a similar camera and I know how the standard straps are sweaty to wear in a humid climate. Having strap covers like yours that I could launder would be nice to have,

Congrats on so many words written!

Hugs, Pat

I really like your camera strap sleeves June. I never did find a spot to set up my portable sewing machine -- it's so darn inconvenient to do it on the kitchen table. Excuses, excuses :) Anyway I love the ones you made!

And those sleeves are very nice!
